FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The owner of a West Fargo tanning salon has been sentenced to prison for failing to register as a sex offender.
Twenty-eight-year-old Jared Holland pleaded guilty to the charge in federal court on April 1.
Authorities say they discovered Holland was a convicted sex offender after police responded to a domestic complaint in March 2012.
Holland was convicted of second degree rape in Brown County, South Dakota, in September 2003.
Investigators say Holland and his wife had moved to North Dakota to operate Exclusive Tan in West Fargo. Holland failed to notify authorities of his new job, as is required for a registered sex offender.
U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson on Thursday sentenced Holland to seven months in prison, followed by seven months of home confinement.
